iPhone 6 Plus vs. Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge

The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is one of the best smartphones the Korean company has come up with in a very long time. Hence, for the first time, we finally have a flagship worthy of comparison with the iPhone 6 Plus, Apple’s latest flagship phone. So if you wish to upgrade or spend money on a new phone, which is the best for you? The following gives a brief overview of the different features of both phones.

Hardware

The iPhone 6 Plus comes with an Apple A9 64-bit dual-core processor which has the M9 motion coprocessor built in, a Power VR GX6450 graphics processor, a 128 GB built-in memory and a 2GB of RAM.

Edge comes with an octa-core processor comprising a quad-core 1.5GHz Cortex-A53 (or a quad-core 2.1GHz Cortex-A57), a Mali-T760 MP8 graphics processor, a 128 GB built-in memory and a 4GB of RAM.

Software

The new iPhone 6 Plus will be the first to run iOS 9, which is much similar to its predecessor but has a more eye-catching font and multi-tasking.  There are many improvements to Siri (Apple’s voice activated technology)means the in-phone assistance can now handle calendars, contacts, and third party applications better.

The S6 Edge runs on the latest Android version 5.1.1 Lollipop and supported by an improved TouchWiz interface with smoother and more innovative features.

Design

The iPhone 6S Plus has no curved screen, no customizable design, no removable parts.Its thin body is wrapped in an aluminumframe and sealed by a double layer of scratch-resistant glass. The home button is located directly below the display and acts a fingerprint reader (now comes with the second generation Touch ID). Along with a switch that alters the notification mode, is the volume keys, which remain on the right-hand side. Just above the SIM card slot is the power button on the opposite side.

In contrast, Samsung has made several changes to its most recent releases especially the withdrawal of the ability to expand the memory or remove the battery. The Samsung Galaxy Edge comes with a curved screen alongside a fingerprint reader on the front panel, moving the power button to the right and the volume keys to the left.

More Efficient

Powered by anExynos 7420 processor, a well-supported 4GB RAM and the latest update to Android Lollipop means that Edge performs well compared to iPhone 6S Plus with a 64-bit A9 processor and powered by 2GB of RAM.

Price

The outright retail prices for the iPhone 6 Plus are $749, $849 and $949 for the 16, 64 and 128 GB versions respectively. However, it will cost $299, $399, $499 for the 16, 64 and 128 GB versions respectively for a two-year contract.

The 32 GB version of Samsung Galaxy Edge Plus is around US$779 while the 64 GB version is around $859 depending on where you buy them.

In conclusion, both have a great design but the Edge 6 has a unique design among smartphones of all platforms (curved edges), but on the display front, the iPhone 6S Plus (with 3D Touch) can sense more inputs and perform tasks that Edge cannot. Edge is better equipped with more RAM and power.Therefore, in the end, it all boils down to whether you want to be within the Apple ecosystem or Samsung’s.
